Hoads Farm at Broad Oak has won an award from Compassion in World Farming.
The Good Egg award recognises good practices and policies at the farm in relation to laying hen welfare.
Adrian Potter, a director at Hoads Farm, said: “We are delighted to have received the award from Compassion in World Farming.
“We remain committed to putting animal welfare at the forefront of our business, by only ever selling higher welfare free range eggs and providing the best environment for our hens.”
Tracey Jones, Director of Food Business at Compassion in World Farming said: “It is so great to see Hoads Farm taking animal welfare into consideration as part of their sourcing policy. Higher welfare produce isn’t just the responsibility of the large corporations, but something that can be achieved at all levels. Well done to Hoads Farm .”
Hoads Farm at 42 acres is one of the few remaining traditional Sussex Farms with its ancient hedgerows, ditch system and original small paddocks still intact.
